About Radon:
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas and is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers.  If your radon is 4.0 pCi/l, or greater, call us for a free estimate.   Pennsylvania is listed as a high-radon state. High radon levels have been found in Honesdale, Montrose, Clarks Summit, and surrounding areas.   Even if your neighbor does not have high radon, it does not mean your house is safe.  Testing should be done. Long-term exposure is unhealthy, and can cause lung cancer.  Protect yourself and your family through radon mitigation.  If we mitigate your radon, we guaranty to reduce your radon below 4.0 pCi/l!

We are PA DEP-Certified to conduct radon testing and mitigation (PA Radon Cert #3201).  Our service areas are Montrose, Tunkhannock, Towanda, Scranton, and surrounding areas.  If you live in Lackawanna, Luzerne, Susquehanna, Wyoming, and Bradford Counties, contact us to set up your test, or mitigation.

Testing is conducted through the use of an E-PERM system. The Electret Ion Chamber short-term (ES) and Electret Ion Chamber Long-term (EL) consist of an electrically conductive disk (electret) and a specially designed chamber.  It is a passive integrating radon testing device that can be used to determine the average radon concentration in a room. The electret has a working range of approximately 750 to 200 volts. When exposed the electret collects the ions produced by radon and radon daughter radioactive decay products on the surface of the disk. These ions cause a corresponding reduction in the electret’s surface voltage. The amount of that surface voltage reduction is then read with a special voltmeter and is directly related to the time integrated average radon concentration.

Mitigation is provided by different methods, with sub-slab depressurization being the most common.  Systems are typicall installed within one day.  We provide post-testing to validate a reduction in Radon level, and is typically guaranteed to be reduced to below the EPA threshold of 4.0 pCi/l.
